    Quoted from jrpinball:

    Mopar did mention "Diamond Jack", but I can't believe no one else mentioned "King of Diamonds"!
    I'm an add-a-ball guy, but I'd say it's gotta be #1. It's so hard to name #2 and #3, but "North Star" and "Kings & Queens" are two I wouldn't argue with. All three replay games!!! Shame on me!

    I agree with JR here. At least one small flipper game has to be in the top three. Small flipper games tend to have the best artwork, the 100 point gong bell, and back glass animation.

    Jacks Open
    Atlantis
    Gold Strike
    But it all depends which one is playing nice with me!

    Quoted from Mopar:

    And funny thing is, and not to disagree, but I traded of a KOD as soon as I went through it.
    For me it was like night & day to DJ, which I myself especially like, but then again, N.S. didn't
    do anything for me, but now that I have added space, I'll be resetting that one up, and willing
    to give her some other tries..
    Not a Wedge Head, but one Replay I've been advised to get set up is 1962 Trade Winds..

    I love both DJ and KOD, but the rotating specials on KOD do it for me. Gotta have red lights!

    I like the small flipper games better myself!

    I didn't vote for my top 3 because I honestly haven't played enough of them to rate them all! I can say that the best part of EMs is that each one usually has something good going for it. Ed Krynski made some great games!

    I saw Four Square on someones list. That game is awesome. Fast small flipper game!

    Two inch flippers are very often maligned for no good reason. If they're shopped out properly, they have more than enough power to knock the ball around. I think it's easier to make accurate shots with them, and find that they are often more responsive and snappier than many three inch designs. There is science to back that up. Because they're shorter, they have a lower moment of inertia.

    My preferences are: Centigrade 37, Golden Arrow and Flying Carpet

    Kings & Queens
    Buckaroo
    2001

    The only ones I really know...always liked the look of Skyline, Central Park, Subway

    I haven't played many Wedgeheads, but I love my Atlantis! I've also played Buckaroo and really enjoyed it.

    Quoted from jrpinball:

    "Road Race"/"Stock Car"
    "Big Casino"
    "TKO" (flame suit on)

    I agree with Big Casino and Road Race as being among the worst
    Have not played TKO enough (only a couple times at a show) to make true judgement
    I might add Mibs and Domino to the list

    "Mibs"? Wouldn't that also take in "Bowling Queen" and "Rack a Ball"? I don't care for the look of "Mibs" or several other wedgeheads for that matter, but play-wise, it's ok. "Domino" isn't too bad. I've had several copies of it's add-a-ball counterpart, "Play Mates", and it's a totally different game with basically the same playfield. I like the play of "Play Mates". In a way, it's similar to "Flipper".

    Yeah MIBS is same basic game as Bowling Queen and RaB
    but the theme helps make me tolerate those.
    I agree that Playmates AAB is much better player than Replay Domino.

    I have both B.Q and R-a-B
    Worth setting either up?

    Never played it, but now considering to get a backglass for it..

    A backglass for "Play Mates"? Other than BG Resto, you won't find one. Oh, yeah. You have your own source!
